Gustav VIII

Gustav received the 2018 "Urban Bike" award at Eurobike in August this year.  With a functional but cutting-edge design, Gustav is an urban all-rounder built to make the lives of everyday commuters easier. A key design highlight is the built-in front rack with its clever strap system. Even with heavier objects on board, Gustav glides effortlessly through the city streets and you can enjoy a smooth ride. The new frame geometry uses a longer head tube and shorter stem for a more comfortable cycling position. Wider tyres also make for a comfier ride and mean cobblestones or uneven surfaces are no longer something you need to avoid. Gustav VIII comes with an 8-speed Shimano Nexus hub for automatic gear shifting. A dynamo lighting system neatly built into the Curanafenders adds the finishing touch to this Schindelhauer newbie.
